Confirmed: Manchester City and QPR line-ups

Manchester City Stand

Here is how Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Manchester City welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Etihad Stadium with the visitors knowing they must win to keep their survival hopes alive. Anything else and Chris Ramsey’s men will join Burnley in being relegated back to the Championship.

Fans of both clubs will remember this fixture three years ago, when QPR put in an amazing performance and came within seconds of preventing City from winning the Premier League crown.

While QPR are currently bottom of the table, nine points clear of safety with three games remaining, City are hoping to consolidate second with Arsenal hot on their heels and with a game-in-hand over Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

City are unbeaten in their last five league matches against QPR, with the London last tasting victory 15 years ago; and with the visitors taking only nine points since the turn of the year, things are not boding well for a club who have endured a tough campaign.
